Margarita pretty good, food OK, service decent

A pretty nice atmosphere to head into after work and whatnot, and to grab a margarita or beer with friends. However, I wouldn't come here for the food - then again, pretty sure most people already know that. Fajita makings were cheap and somewhat bland, also came out much later than the other... read more

This is a fairly basic, but rather jolly cantina style eatery serving the usual range of Mexican fare. Service is fast and efficient. They bring nachos and salsa for you to nibble on whilst they cook the main course. We both had fajitas , so we shared the pile of pancakes and the various accompaniments. My husbands steak and my...

Great margaritas, but the portions of guacamole were too small. Fajitas were pretty good. Ambiance is very casual, bar-like atmosphere. A fair amount of room to accommodate larger groups. Our server was not very friendly, but maybe he was just having a bad day.

The portions were huge at fajitas and ritas! The food was good. Prices are very reasonable. A classic frozen margarita was only $5 and a non-alcoholic strawberry daiquiri was $3!! The decor is very artsy and fun! Overall a good dining experience!!

i wanted to write something more positive or negative but couldn't master the words. neither much flavour nor blandness about the food yet the service was friendly and fast. better places to visit in Boston.

I went for lunch with my son. We ordered quesadillas. My pulled pork quesadilla was so watery I left the soggy tortilla in the dish and only ate the filling. My son's chicken quesadilla was bland, cold and the cheese wasn't melted. The only good food on our table was the complementary chips and salsa. Since there were only about... More

We hope that you and your friend may come back one day and give us another shot. We appreciate your... More

I stumbled upon Fajitas & Ritas after a show at the Boston Opera House. I didn't have any set expectations but thought I would give it a whirl. I absolutely loved it! The warm chips before my meal were absolutely fabulous, and the drinks were great (but a little pricey). I got a quesadilla and it was delicious! The food... More

We walked here from our hotel after seeing the ad in their brochure. We were at first a little disappointed by the lack of attention from the hostess. She seemed to be overwhelmed by the fact that there were 3-4 groups waiting for tables. She had a hard time figuring out how best to get people seated. Luckily, we stuck... More
